OpenAI says The New York Times lawsuit against it is 'without merit'

OpenAI says The New York Times lawsuit against it is 'without merit'

OpenAI said on monday The New York Times' lawsuit against it was “without merit” and supported and created opportunities for news organizations, as it furthered the debate over unauthorized use of published work to train artificial intelligence technologies.

The Times sued OpenAI and Microsoft on December 27, accusing the companies of infringing its copyright by using millions of its articles to train AI technologies such as the ChatGPAT chatbot. The lawsuit says chatbots now compete with The Times as a source of reliable information.

In a 1,000-word blog post on Monday, OpenAI said it has collaborated with news organizations and has partnered with some of them, including the Associated Press. The company said that using copyrighted works to train its technologies is fair use under the law. It said the Times' lawsuit does not tell the full story of the operations of OpenAI and its technologies.

“We look forward to continued collaboration with news organizations to help enhance their ability to produce quality journalism by realizing the transformative potential of AI,” the company wrote.

OpenAI spokeswoman Lindsay Held declined to comment further.

The Times was the first major US media organization to sue OpenAI and Microsoft over copyright issues related to its written works. Other groups, including novelists and computer programmers, have also filed copyright lawsuits against AI companies. The suits have been inspired by the boom in “generative AI” technologies, which generate text, images and other media from brief signals.

OpenAI and other AI companies build this technology by feeding them massive amounts of digital data, some of which is likely copyrighted. This has led to the realization that online information – stories, artwork, news articles, message board posts and photographs – can have significant untapped value.

AI companies have long claimed that they can legally use such content to train their technologies without paying because the content is public and they are not reproducing the content in its entirety.

In its blog post, OpenAI said that its discussions with the Times about a potential partnership appeared to be progressing constructively, with the last communication occurring on December 19. During the conversation, she said, the Times mentioned that it had seen OpenAI's technology being “revitalized.” Some of its content – ​​meaning the technology had generated almost verbatim excerpts from articles that ran in The Times – but declined to provide examples. When The Times reported the lawsuit eight days later, OpenAI said it was surprised and disappointed.

The Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

OpenAI said that its technology occasionally reblogs articles, but that this was a “rare bug” that it was working to resolve. The Times' lawsuit included examples that showed ChatGPT reproducing excerpts from its articles almost word for word.

“Intentionally manipulating our models to regenerate is not a fair use of our technology and is against our terms of use,” OpenAI said.
